In this section you can find pictures which can be used as a stimulus for free speaking or writing at different levels. They can be used at the beginning of the class or at any other point during the class. Students see the picture and describe it in their own words. They could spend 5 to 10 minutes or more if they like. They could start by answering the following questions: wer? was? wann? wo? wie? warum/wozu? Teachers could also give them some specific tasks – like “use these words” (and then list the words that the students should use) or give them the situation that they need to describe (“this person would like to order some food”) etc. These pictures can be used in tests too.
